 Christian IV of Denmark and Norway : Christian IV of Denmark
Christian IV (1577—1648), king of Denmark and Norway, the son of II of Denmark">Frederick II, king of Denmark, and Sophia of Mecklenburg[?], was born at Frederiksborg castle[?] in 1577, and succeeded to the throne on the death of his father (April 4, 1588), attaining his majority on August 17, 1596.
Thus the possession of a superior sea-power enabled Denmark to tide over her worst difficulties, and in May 1629 Christian was able to conclude peace with the emperor at Lübeck, without any diminution of territory.
They were now able, thanks to their conquests in the Thirty Years' War, to attack Denmark from the south as well as the east; the Dutch alliance promised to secure them at sea, and an attack upon Denmark would prevent her from utilizing the impending peace negotiations to the prejudice of Sweden.

Anne's birth at Skanderborg Castle in Skanderborg, in Jutland, in the Kingdom of Denmark, on 12 December 1574 came as a blow to her father, King Frederick II of Denmark, who was desperately hoping for a son.
Compared with the roving Danish court, where King Frederick was notorious for gargantuan meals, heavy drinking, and restless behaviour which included unfaithfulness to the queen, Güstrow provided Anne with a frugal and stable environment during her early childhood.
